Thrifty Thursdays

It's been awhile since I've done a Thrifty Thursday post, but I've been thrifting quite a bit lately. My parents moved to a different city, so I had to go check out their Goodwill... and I happened to stop in on the day the clothes were 50% off! I had originally only picked up one blazer that was about $10 but after realizing there was a sale I grabbed a couple more! My total was about $11! 

The middle blazer above was the first one I picked up. It has beautiful lace detail and that's why I was drawn to it. I picked up a couple more for less than $3 each!

Over winter break I sent some clean out bags to ThredUp and I finally got around to ordering some new clothes from them and I love my purchases! All but one are perfect fits, I'm hoping the purple ones end up working out though! But on the plus side, I think I may have FINALLY found the perfect pair of cobalt blue pants! Both pair of shorts are amazing!

I had some spare time before class earlier this week so I stopped in at the Goodwill there, and I found some pretty great items! I bought the mint (?) sweater on a whim and I'm not sure if I'm going to like it... I guess I should have tried them on before I bought them. Lesson learned. 

The chevron shirt is also a little small, but I'm hoping it'll work out. 

The last couple of shirts I picked up yesterday, and I wasn't impressed with the selection at the Goodwill I went to.

Pinspired Tuesdays

Well classes are in full swing, but honestly, I feel less overwhelmed this semester than I have in the past. I have 3 face to face classes and my Tuesday are completely full of class, but I like that most of my classes are all on one day. 

I'm trying really hard not to fall into the yoga pant trap at classes... no matter how hard it is! Sometimes it's hard to pick out an outfit that is cute but comfortable so that it will last all day. So I've used this Stylebook app to aid me in my outfits. I take screen shots the outfits from Pinterest and save them in the "inspiration" section of the app and look through them when I'm getting dressed. It also allows me to create outfits and then I can add the outfits to the calendar. It also helps me keep track of how many times I wear each article of clothing so then eventually I can go through and donate what I don't wear. 

Anyways, on to the outfit! This outfit is obviously a summer outfit, but I winterized it and made it work appropriate. :)

Happy 2015!

Whew! The last half of 2014 was just as crazy as the first half! I have really missed blogging, but let's be honest: a) I hardly had time to do anything other than school work; and b) since I didn't work, I didn't bother to get all dressed up (I basically lived in yoga pants!). Even the few times I did get dressed up I didn't manage to get any pictures. 

Lately though, I've found myself with an extreme amount of spare time on my hands since I school doesn't start for another week. I've been binge-watching Gilmore Girls on netflix, purging my closet, browsing pinterest, and eating way too much! I found this pin and decided I was going to recreate that look the next time I was got all dressed up.

New Obsessions

If you follow me on Instagram you've likely seen my new obsession, vintage pyrex! I just love the colors, and they're so durable! So every time I head to Goodwill I make sure to head straight to the cookware section. I also look for it on CraigsList and Facebook. 

I also have this new thing for Longaberger baskets. I found some this past weekend when I was at goodwill for pretty cheap! I snagged them up right away. Not sure what I'll do with them yet, but I'm sure I can come up with something!

I ended up really liking the leopard with the neon yellow. I also think that these shorts from the Gap are amazing. They're not super short, but they're also not too long. Which is perfect for this momma!

Pinspired Tuesday: Green Shorts && Summer Cleaning

I feel like I'm constantly going through my closet and cleaning it out. I'm getting ready to send in my FOURTH bag to thredUP since March. Granted, one of the bags was full of kid clothes, which is awesome that they take kid clothes too! If you've been reading for awhile now, and following me on Instagram you know how much I've come to love thredUP. Have you guys checked them out yet? If not, go check them out!

This is just one of my favorite outfits that I've put together from my thredUP purchases! It was inspired by this pin

Tough Decision..

After thinking about the upcoming school year and how many credit hours I'm taking, I decided to focus on my school work, so I won't be working this school year. I'm very sad and it was an extremely difficult decision for me to make. With that being said, hopefully I have a little bit more time to blog and my outfits will probably be more casual than they were last year. I am pretty excited that I'll be able to spend a little more time at home and with the kids. :)

I fell in love with this skirt when I saw it at a local Goodwill. I struggled with how to wear it, but I knew I wanted to wear this skirt and shirt together. I originally had the shirt untucked, but I thought it looked sloppy. I tucked the shirt in, pulled the skirt up to my natural waist, and I LOVED the end result. In fact, I started wearing more of my skirts this way. So when in doubt, try to tuck it in! :)
